First International Workshop on
Bidirectional Transformations (BX 2012)

Tallinn, Estonia
Sun, March 25, 2012

(co-located with ETAPS 2012)

Definition, application, manipulation, and formalization of bidirectional transformations is a widely studied problem in the database community. It has also been studied from different angles in other communities as well, including programming languages, software engineering, and graph transformation. BX 2012 is the first in a series of workshops designed to facilitate communication and collaboration across these communities.


* Juan de Lara (Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain)
* second invited speaker still to be decided


* Paper submission: Mon, December 19, 2011
* Author notification: Tue, January 24, 2012
* Camera-ready papers: Sun, February 5, 2012

To facilitate smooth organization of the review process, authors are
asked to submit a short abstract by December 12, 2011.


* Regular submissions (max. 15 pages, formal proceedings)
* Short papers (max. 8 pages, informal proceedings)
* Lightning talks (extended abstract)

Submissions can be in LNCS or EC-EASST style.

More details can be found on the webpage.


There will be formal proceedings containing all accepted regular papers,
published as a volume of EC-EASST (Electronic Communications of the
European Association of Software Science and Technology, Short papers will be included
in informal proceedings distributed at the workshop, and their authors
may be invited to extend their contribution to a full paper for
inclusion in the formal proceedings.


Bidirectional transformations (bx) are a mechanism for maintaining the
consistency of two (or perhaps more) related sources of information.
Such sources can be databases, software models, documents, or their
abstract models like graphs or trees. The methodologies used for bx
range from classical program transformation to graph transformation
techniques, from ad-hoc techniques for data synchronization to the
development of domain-specific languages and their integration. We also
solicit papers on model/metamodel co-evolution, which is a different yet
closely related subject.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers, from all
relevant areas, interested in bidirectional transformations from
different perspectives, such as: language-based approaches,
software/model transformations, and data/schema co-evolution.

Topics of interest for BX 2012 include, but are not limited to:

* (coupled) software/model transformations
* software-model synchronization
* data-schema co-evolution and data synchronization
* consistency analysis
* language-based approaches
* analysis/classification of requirements for bx technologies
* case studies and tool support
* comparison of bx technologies
* efficiency of algorithms and benchmarks

Regular submissions (11-15 pages) can be:

* research papers providing new concepts and results
* position papers and research perspectives
* papers that apply bx in new domains
* papers closing gaps between formal concepts and application scenarios
